Today is day 10 for me, and this thread really strikes a chord!! I have about 40-45lbs. to release (re-gained after a 95lbs. release in 2010), and I sometimes feel so desperate!! It's been an adjustment to stay away from the scale. But, it's such a relief to not weigh/measure/track/obsess about my food! I will admit, I've already tried on a too-tight work outfit, with no real change in tightness, and it was messing with me, so I'm committed to not doing that, either.
